Sites of Palpable Arteries A. The temporal artery is anterior to the ear and overlies the temporal bone, one of the few normally tortuous arteries. The
common carotid is deep in the neck near the anterior border of the sternocleidomastoid muscle. The bifurcation of this artery is opposite the superior
border of the thyroid cartilage. The carotid sinus is at the bifurcation. B. Elongation or dilation of the ascending aorta and arch makes this vessel accessible
to palpation in the suprasternal notch. With slight shifting to the right or left, the innominate or left carotid arteries may also be felt in the notch. C. The
brachial artery lies deep in the biceps-triceps furrow on the medial side of the arm near the elbow. It courses toward the midline of the antecubital fossa,
where it is usually just medial to the biceps tendon. D. The radial artery is just medial to the outer border of the radius and lateral to the tendon of the flexor
